PeopleTV is about to become a full 24-hour linear TV channel, distributed through internet-streaming startup FuboTV — its first pay-tv deal. In another new extension, PeopleTV next week is set to launch “Chatter,” its first live talk show on Twitter, hosted by TV personality Rocsi Diaz.
Details of how PeopleTV will be available on FuboTV are yet to be announced. Susanne Mei, general manager of PeopleTV, said the amount of live and on-demand content on the virtual pay-tv service will be “substantially larger” than what’s available on the PeopleTV app. It will also be the first place to catch many PeopleTV premieres before they become available for free.
